For a comprehensive listing, see our high-value dataset of Significant NRC Enforcement Actions, as well as the related Data Dictionary (both in Microsoft Excel format). For additional information about current actions, see Issued Significant Enforcement Actions.

Although this site does not include a collection of enforcement actions issued for less significant violations (referred to as non-escalated actions), these actions are a part of the public record for each licensee and can be located by searching individual dockets through NRC's online Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS).
